Lincolnshire saw rare weather phenomenon last night
Parts of Lincolnshire saw a rare phenomenon last night (Thursday) called a heat burst which could have caused a bad night's sleep.
The Met Office said there was a temporary rise of 10C at about 10.20pm, meaning temperatures reached an uncomfortable 32C.
This was due to a thunderstorm collapsing in the skies above the county, quickly bringing hot air down to the surface.
They went onto say: "Tonight's event is likely to be an example of a heat burst, a rare atmospheric phenomenon characterised by gusty winds along with a rapid increase in temperature and decrease in dew point (moisture)."
The heat burst came after the hottest July day on record.
